Background

Veer Towers were once described as a pair of drunken revelers because of the offset angles
Veer Towers is a striking new addition to the already interesting skyline of Las Vegas, or more specifically, Paradise, Nevada. The architects at Francisco Gonzalez Pulido designed the twin towers to be offset by five degrees each from each other introducing some interesting construction issues.


The residences within were designed by Dianna Wong Architecture & Interior Design. Each tower has 337 condominium homes ranging in size from 537 square feet to 2256 square feet. There are a selection of studios, one, two, and three bedroom layouts, not to mention the penthouse suites.


As part of the CityCenter, which was begun by MGM Resorts International, Veer Towers is a part of the largest privately funded construction project in the United States. A bulk sale of 427 units were sold to Ladder Capital Finance by CityCenter in December of 2012 for $119 million and they are represented by Pordes Residential.


Veer Towers has access to a wide variety of art and sculptures as a part of CityCenter. One notable work includes the mud drawings in the lobbies of each of the Veer Towers by Richard Long, one of Britain's best-known sculptors.[1]



Location

Veer Towers is centrally located in the heart of Paradise City near the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino and not far from the airport. It is on one end of the what is referred to the world over, as The Strip in Las Vegas. The twin towers take their place among the other architectural wonders of that area.


MGM Grand, New York-New York Hotel and Casino, Planet Hollywood, Bellagio, Flamingo, Caesar's - they're all within a couple of blocks of Veer Towers.

Construction

Architectural drawings showing the offset angles of the buildings


The design of Veer Towers accepted the challenge of creating a sustainable, all glass tower in the desert. This was accomplished largely due to the gold colored adjustable louvers on the building's all glass façade that provide shading under heavy solar loads. High performance Low-E glazing in the glass permits daylight visibility without the introduction of solar heat gain.


Each of the Veer Towers has an 80 foot high glassed in lobby. Cooling and heating of this space was determined to be best served by a radiant cooling surface utilizing either chilled or heated water to control the temperature. Combined with displacement ventilation, which provides outside air requirements, was the solution chosen to maintain occupant comfort within the lobby space.


The load bearing structure uses a simple Z-shaped central core repetitively. The support columns are perfectly vertical while the façades incline inward on one side and outward on the other at the designed five degrees. With the colored louvers, the glass façade, and the usual angle of the structure, the Veer Towers add an iconic look the the city's skyline.[3]
